Massage is part of normal family life in India, and is used as part of natural healthcare, in order to maintain good health and help keep fit and supple. In India, there are many different styles of massage, using oils, herbal pastes and powders. However, Ayurvedic massage isn’t a clinical treatment, and learning the basics of Ayurvedic massage with natural oils is straightforward and enjoyable. Ayurveda means ‘the wisdom of life’ and is the name given to an ancient Indian system for achieving and maintaining optimum health and balance. Ayurveda has several arms – yoga, herbs, diet, essential oils and massage. In India, Ayurvedic doctors train for many years to diagnose and treat imbalances and illnesses, and this traditional form of healing is used alongside orthodox, Western medicine.

Yoga teachers will find Ayurvedic Massage a useful addition to their skillset and could go on to learn Indian Head Massage or Thai Foot Massage too, in order to offer a range of treatments to complement their yoga teaching.
